The project developer, WP South Acquisitions, LLC, aims to rezone the property from Arterial Commercial District (C-2) to Character Area Planned Unit Development to make way for five three-story buildings which would host 250 apartment dwelling units, eight garage buildings, 400 parking spaces, as well as recreation areas, sidewalks and landscaping. The project applicant also plans to develop the land located west of the train tracks as a park and dedicate it to the city, according to city documents.
